Well, I think there needs to be a standard way to update/replace
the EPR that the client used to invoke the service.  However, in
the case of WSN, this isn't what's happening.  The subscription
response is saying something along the lines of "Ok, if you want
to communicate further with respect to *this* subscription, you
need to use this new EPR".

That is different than saying "From now on, when you communicate
with me, you should use this new EPR".

I think that both situations are different and that the EPR for
the subscription related information is a application level
message that should be in the body and should be documented
by WSN as it doesn't change further invocations of the interface
that resulted in the subscription.

I also think it would be good to standardize a method for the
recipient of a message to send back a response that indicates
that the sender should alter the logical EPR used to invoke
the service (change the endpoint, change the reference parameters,
etc.).
